Arduino Data-Logging Shield Kit 



SUMMARY 

This data-logging shield for the Arduino makes saving data to files on any FAT16 or FAT32 
formatted SD card really easy. The included Real-Time Clock timestamps all your data with 
the current time, so that you know precisely what happened and when! 




Check to make sure you have all of the necessary components to build the data logging 
kit. 







• Insert the resistor with color bands Brown-Black-Orange into the location marked R5. 

• Resistors are not polarized, so it does not matter which direction you insert them in. 

• Turn the board over, and then solder the leads.

• Make your soldering life easier by 
trimming the leads of the 
components after you solder them 
in.

# In locations R3 and R4, insert the two resistors with the color bands Brown-Black-Red, 

• Turn the board over, and solder the resistors in. Then clip the leads.

The SD card holder has two humps that snap it into place on the circuit board. 

You should be able to feel it fit into two grooves and sit snugly on the surface. 

On the sides are 4 tabs. Solder these tabs to the circuit board by first heating up the tabs, 
and then applying solder. The holder shouldn't move once it's been soldered in. 

Now all you need to do is solder the leftmost 7 tabs to the circuit board. It is unnecessary 
to solder the remaining three.

• In locations R1 and R2, insert the two resistors with the color code Red-Red-Red. 

• Solder these two resistors in, and then clip the leads.

• The two small, yellow ceramic 
capacitors are not polarized, so it 
does not matter which direction you 
insert them. 

• Insert them into locations C2 and 
C3. 

• Solder them in, and then clip the 
leads. 





• Electrolytic capacitors are 
polarized, so it is important to 
insert them properly. 

• The longer lead is the "+" lead, so 
make sure you enter this lead into 
the hole marked with the "+. 

• Insert them into locations C1 and 
C4. Solder them in, and then clip 
the leads.

• Insert the 3.3V Regulator. 

• In location IC1, insert the regulator with its flat end matched up with the flat side of the 
silk-screened image on the circuit board. 

• Solder the leads in, and then clip them. 



Step 10 — Insert the 8-pin Socket. 




The socket has a notch on one end. This notch must match the one in the picture silk- 
screened onto the circuit board. 

Make sure the socket is flush with the circuit board when you turn it over to solder. 

Once the socket is soldered in, you can insert the IC into the socket.

The longer chip will be inserted into location IC3 without a socket. It is important to make 
sure that the end of the chip with the notch matches up with the the notch on the silk- 
screened image. 

Turn the board over and solder the chip into the circuit board. 



Step 12 — Soldering the Battery Holder. 




Deposit a bit of solder on the center tab of the location marked BAT. 
Now you can insert the metal battery holder and solder it in.

Step 13 — Insert the Reset Button 




• The reset button is inserted into the 
location marked RESET. 

• Press the button all the way into 
the circuit board. Turn the board 
over and solder it in. 



Step 14 — Insert the LEDs 




In location LED1, insert the green 
LED. The longer lead of the LED 
should be inserted into the hole 
marked "+" on the circuit board. 

In location LED2, insert the red 
LED. Just as with the green LED, 
insert the longer lead of the LED 
into the hole marked with the "+".

Step 15 — Insert the Watch Crystal 




In location Q1, insert the small metal cylinder. The crystal is not polarized, so you can 
insert it in any direction. 

Solder it in, and then clip the leads. 



Step 16 — Clip your headers. 




From the 36-pin header, clip two 8- 
pin and two 6-pin headers.

Step 17 — Soldering the Headers. 




Insert the longer end of the headers into the female headers on the Arduino. 
Place the shield on top of the the shorter leads of the headers. 
Solder every pin of the male headers, and you will be finished. 



Step 18 — Finishing Touches. 




• Insert the included coin-cell battery, and you are finished. 

• You can remove the shield from the Arduino, or keep it attached to the Arduino.
